--> I went to Gay Pride last year. [[IThoughtItMeant I though they said beer]]. "Swing by the parade, there'll be thousands of beers", that's what I heard. It was fun! I was glad I went. Took me a while to figure out what the hell was going on, though. Got down there, full of enthusiasm, "We're here! We're beer! We're here! We're beer! We're... we're... we're what? All of ya? Wooow! You guys are gonna laugh! I heard the wrong word. What do you say we get together Saint Patrick's Day. I'd more comfortable with that. Or maybe I'll see you at your wedding."

* An extreme version has happened with talk show host [[http://sandrarose.com/2014/07/wendy-williams-gets-why-people-say-she-was-born-a-man/ Wendy Williams]], who has actually been mistaken for a crossdressing man because of her height, relatively manly features, and over the top wigs and make up. However, despite all this she is in fact not a man and in fact has a child and has had many miscarriages.

* Happens to DoctorStrange in the miniseries The Oath often enough to qualify as a running gag. First, random street toughs assume he and his friend and servant Wong are a gay couple, then Night Nurse seems to assume that Wong calling Stephen 'master' is sexual in nature (alluded to by her remark about his being unable to pass comment on 'other people's fetishes'). ''[[RuleOfThree Then]]'' Reginald Pavlish, a would-be patient of Strange's in his last days as an [[DrJerk arrogant young surgeon]] offers 'something else' to repay Strange, in what reads very nearly as an inverted ScarpiaUltimatum (Strange turns him down anyway.)
